For a number of years, the IMA has been running a series of conferences to promote mathematics with the aim of demonstrating to both mathematicians and non-mathematicians the many uses of modern mathematics. Following last summer’s very successful IMA Mathematics 2020 series collaboration with the Newton Gateway to Mathematics, we are pleased to announce two events for 2021 taking place this May.
The first talk at the 6 May event will be from Nick Higham who has been awarded the Gold Medal award in recognition of outstanding contributions to mathematics and its applications. This will be followed by Jane Leeks and David Abrahams discussing future developments in mathematical sciences knowledge exchange. (See the event page for further details)
On Tuesday 25 May, we will have two talks which feature the work of V-KEMS (Virtual Forum for Knowledge Exchange in Mathematical Sciences). Presentations will feature the work of two very successful virtual study groups, which ran in the earlier this year, on Reducing the Risk of Covid-19 Transmission on Trains and Modelling Solutions to the Impact of COVID-19 on Cardiovascular Waiting Lists. (See the event page for further details).
